Downtown’s Cultural District is home to the 185-room Fairmont Pittsburgh. The hotel is inside the PNC Plaza, a mixed-use glass building with private residences and a rollicking lobby bar, Andy’s, where jazz bands perform four nights a week. The hotel’s American bistro, Habitat, has an open kitchen, serves excellent brunches, and offers monthly cooking classes. Rooms and suites have plush beds and fabulous views of Pittsburgh’s downtown stadiums, rivers, and business district. Consider unwinding at the hotel’s 6,000-square-foot spa and health club with a fully equipped gym, treatment rooms, and private saunas.
